Acorn Property Group’s Bristol Office, in partnership with Galliard Homes and landowner Folland Ltd, has been granted detailed planning permission by Bristol City Council for a regeneration project, delivering one hundred and five new homes at the former Brooks Dye Works in St Werburghs.
Formerly a laundry and dye works, the 4-acre site will be redeveloped to provide 1, 2 and 3-bed apartments, 2, 3 and 4-bed houses and 6,000 sq ft of commercial space.
The derelict industrial site will be opened up and new streets and pedestrian routes will connect the new homes with the existing residential neighbourhood. Mina Park will also be extended into the Ferguson Mann Architects-designed scheme bringing additional green space to the area. The former factory’s iconic chimney will remain as a centrepiece and reference point to the site’s history and heritage.
Construction is due to start in the autumn with the first homes delivered in 2019 and completion expected in autumn 2020.
Robin Squire, Regional Managing Director for Acorn Property Group’s Bristol office said: “This is a key regeneration site that has lain vacant and closed off for more than 10 years but now we can deliver new homes, parkland and pedestrian links building on, and benefitting the strong local community.”
